»A life well lived« could very well be the slogan for the capital of Slovenia’s Styria region, for its greatest assets is its extraordinary access to nature, with an attractive position between the Drava river, the Pohorje plateau on one side and, on the other, wine-growing hills that stretch all the way to the Austrian border and beyond.

Maribor is also well known for its rich sports activities that it provides for its leisure and business guests. Thus, Maribor is this year a proud owner of a ‘European City of Sport 2018’ title.

Not to mention, that Maribor’s Pohorje plateau is also the place of a worldwide attraction – the annual Golden Fox FIS SKI World.

The Pohorje plateau, the pride, and joy of the Styria region and its capital Maribor, is a natural wonderland, in winter time transformed into a buzzing ski resort, one of the largest and most attractive in Slovenia. Its additional specialty is the longest night-skiing trail not just in the country but also far beyond the Slovenian border. At certain times, visitors can also enjoy night sledding.

The Mariborsko Pohorje ski centre offers more than 41.5km of well-kept slopes for all kind of skiers, from beginners to experts. The slopes range from 325m to 1,327m above sea level. The Pohorje ridges offer 27km of cross-country ski runs.


Pohorje’s foot is just a 15 minutes’ drive from Maribor’s city centre.

One of the symbols of Maribor Pohorje is the cableway that has been transporting passengers to an altitude above 1000 meters for more than 6 decades.

Maribor Pohorje, together with Areh, is regarded as the largest winter sports center in Slovenia for its 42 km of ski slopes (from easy, medium to hard) and more than 15 ski lift devices.
